Re: PR libstdc++/68222 Hide safe iterator operators

On 02/08/18 22:16 +0200, François Dumont wrote:

    Here is a patch to avoid definition of invalid operators on the Debug mode safe iterator type depending on its category.

    Even if it is limited to the Debug mode code I would like to have a feedback before committing. Especially on the following points:

- _Safe_tagged_iterator: Is the name ok ?

Hmm, maybe "strict" instead of tagged?

But do we need a new name? Can we just change _Safe_iterator instead
of adding a new type?

Where is _Safe_iterator still used? Just local iterators in unordered
containers?  Is it OK to remove most of the functions that used to
support it? (__niter_base etc).

Could we add a new type for the local iterators, and just change
_Safe_iterator directly so it doesn't expose unsupported operations?

That would make the patch *much* smaller, as you wouldn't need to
change all the uses of _Safe_iterator.

Another approach would be to use mixins to expose the operations:

template<typename _Iter, typename _Cat>
struct _Safe_iterator_mixin<_Iter, _Cat>
 typename iterator_traits<_Iter>::reference
 { return static_cast<_Iter*>(this)->_M_deref(); }

template<typename _Iter, typename _Cat>
struct _Safe_iterator_mixin<_Iter, forward_iterator_tag>
 _Iter& operator++()
 { return static_cast<_Iter*>(this)->_M_preinc(); }
 _Iter operator++(int)
 { return static_cast<_Iter*>(this)->_M_postinc(); }

template<typename _Iter, typename _Cat>
struct _Safe_iterator_mixin<_Iter, bidirectional_iterator_tag>
 _Iter& operator--()
 { return static_cast<_Iter*>(this)->_M_predec(); }
 _Iter operator--(int)
 { return static_cast<_Iter*>(this)->_M_postdec(); }


then in _Safe_iterator rename the operator functions, so operator*
becomes _M_deref, operator++ becomes _M_preinc etc. and then derive
from _Safe_iterator_mixin which declares the operators.

- Inheritance between the different _Safe_tagged_iterator instantiations. I am already working on making the operators friends as we discuss in another thread so I might review this design at this moment.

- Are concept checks I added to testsuite_containers.h citerator ok ?

Yes, they look useful.

    This patch also does some cleanup on Debug functions. __check_dereferenceable was not used (anymore maybe) so I removed it.

It would have made the patch a bit more manageable to keep that as a
separate patch, but nevermind.
